Where to eat
- L'Abeille. This Michelin starred restaurant mixes grand ingredients and plenty of vegetables; think John Dory with beetroot juice, or rabbit with Swiss chard and truffles.
- Pierre Gagnaire. An eclectic mix of fantastic food: try the tuna meringue or a clam with diced veg.
- Local currency is the Euro.
- Language is French.
- Visas are required by some nationals, not all, best to check their list to see.
- Plug sockets are the European two prong style.
- Cultural sensitivities are few and far between, but when conducting business, it is always worth noting:
- In France it is vital to ensure that you make appointments for both business and social occasions. It is not acceptable in France to ‘drop in’.
- Punctuality is treated quite casually.
- Gift-giving among business associates is not common practice in France.
